Who says rain has to ruin your wedding day? In fact, for this couple, it was a welcome guest as it cooled down the triple-digit July Dallas heat to a cool 80 degrees! This rainy Dallas wedding is full of fun and sophistication. The couple had a traditional church ceremony in Perkins Chapel on Southern Methodist University's campus. The party then continued at The Room on Main where the couple treated their guests to casino games! Talk about a fun reception! Check out the gallery to see all of the fun images captured by Melissa Claire Photography.

From Melissa Claire Photography...Sara and Van are two of the most contagiously joyful people I've ever met, and I say that with 100% seriousness. Their wedding was laid back and stylish with an emphasis on candid photography - which we LOVE to do! Capturing people as they truly are is such a rewarding and satisfying experience. As an added bonus, the weather in Dallas in July could not have been any more perfect. 80 degrees and misty? It truly was #winterinjuly! 

The color scheme consisted of ivory and vibrant pops of purple and elegant greenery. They both wanted their guests to have fun - so rather than have toasts, they had a Casino Night along with dancing the night away at their reception!
